Running Kubuntu 18.10, on Lenovo Y530.

On their own, WiFi connection and Bluetooth speakers work fine. If running both, heavy interference is introduced. This first resulted in both WiFi connection dropping to less than 10% of the speed (and, in some cases, upload failing completely), and BT signal jamming/skipping heavily.

I tried setting options iwlwifi bt_coex_active=N in /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf, which completely disabled my BT (EDIT: see below). I then set it to bt_coex_active=0 and removed Blueman (not sure if its removal was important), which solved the WiFi problems, but BT signal is still not working (still skipping heavily) if WiFi is used.

EDIT: I now tried setting it to N again, and it is exactly the same as 0. Not sure why it didn't work before.

On Windows, everything works fine. Also, everything is fine if I connect to the speakers from my phone - meaning it probably isn't the signal itself getting jammed (sadly, my router doesn't support 5GHz, so I cannot check this thoroughly). I tried changing the WiFi channels, but with no effects.

It might be the driver issue, but the same problem occurs when using a WiFi USB adapter. It might be that, although this adapter was stated as "in use" for the connection, it wasn't really used and WiFi was still going over the built-in cart - I have no idea how to check for this.

Here is the output usually requested for these problems, please ask if some more is needed. Thanks!
